Full description

Day 1: Lima - Ballestas Islands - Huacachina

Start with early pickup from your hotel in Lima or meeting point. Travel to Paracas, beautiful small town by the sea, on a 4-hour journey. Upon arrival in Paracas, begin a 2-hour boat tour of the Ballestas Islands. These islands are said to be a smaller version of the Galápagos. See sea lions, penguins, birds, and even dolphins up close in their natural habitats. After the boat tour, head to Huacachina, the only desert oasis in South America. Spend 2 hours getting your thrills with dune buggying and sandboarding on some of the highest sand dunes. Then, transfer to your accommodation in Huacachina. Use your free time to grab some food or maybe a beer. Relax after an adrenaline-filled evening and rest up for the next day.

Day 2: Huacachina - Lima

Leave Huacachina and head off to a 2-hour pisco vineyard tour. See how pisco, Peru's national drink, is made from the grape to the bottle and try lots of free samples. Spend the whole day enjoying Huacachina. Catch some sun by the pool or grab some lunch around the oasis for the perfect end to this trip. Travel by air-conditioned bus back to Lima, and get dropped off either at your hotel or the original meeting point.

A definite must if you’re in Lima long enough. Paracas, Ica and Huacachina are so unique with super sweet people and the activities are super fun no matter your age. I highly suggest staying one night in either Paracas or Huacachina to do some of the other activities like nearby reserve in Paracas or Cañón hike from Huacachina. And of course the sand dunes are a must!!!

Fue una excelente experiencia, Sandra y Alex nos recogieron y explicaron el viaje y nos ayudaron en Paracas, en nuestro caso nos quedamos en Huacachina y ahí nuestro guía fue Christian, la pasamos muy bien, fue de gran ayuda, muy amable en todo momento y muy divertida toda la experiencia. El transporte es bastante cómodo y no tuvimos ninguna complicación durante el viaje.
